Happy mail

My absolute favorite thing is to make crafts. My second favorite thing? Make crafts for my friends. Since I have a couple good friends in other states and countries, I enjoy sending some “happy mail.” If you have read my entries before, I’ve shown a couple crafty mail pieces before. More specifically, this was a little…

Simple DIY

I’ve been meaning to do something with my Marzia hand patch ever since I got it. For fear of using it on something and regretting my choice, I never got around to actually doing it. I was falling asleep on the couch and a thought came across me… it’s not much of a life to…

Blog dump

I know, it’s been a little over a month since my last post. I’ve been gathering photos from different trips, recipes, places and people but never got around to actually creating a post for each individual set of photos. So here I am, just dumping it in one entire post to try to play a little…

Flea Market

This has been in my “blog dump” album for a little while. I keep that album in my phone for certain shots I plan to post but usually don’t get to it until I can literally “dump” it all here. I didn’t realize I had so many photos from the flea market over a month ago…

Gifts & Graduations

My nephew had just finished pre-school (*tear*) and my sister wanted to do something special for all the teachers. My sister is known for her love of succulents so she wanted to leave behind a little bit of her and my nephew. She found the idea online so we went to Michael’s to get a few…

Hand-built desk

So… we’ve finally built our dream “his & hers” gaming desk! This was the first thing we did, even before the movers arrived, in order to ensure we had it all ready for when we received our computers. I’ve had the idea in mind after coming across a few different Pinterest posts before drawing up…

This is 27.

My birthday was last weekend, June the 11th! I can’t believe how fast these years have been flying and have learned to not take them for granted. I’m still young, happy and excited for what life has in store for me but my birthday weekend was the ultimate reminder of it all! What started out…

1950s French Provincial China Cabinet Restoration

For anyone who has followed me may recall a couple months ago when I made this exciting purchase! I’ve been dreaming of a French Provincial China cabinet as one of those pieces I imagine being an adult woman is made up of.  The lines on this beauty called out to me and I couldn’t wait…

Hollywood Studios

I originally planned to post this the next day after my Magic Kingdom post but once in a while, time slips away from me. Better late than never, right?  Hollywood Studios has been a favorite of mine since I was a little girl. Which is funny because most kids could care less for the place. I…

Magic Kingdom

We had purchased a 4-day ticket to Disney World in early March and had only used one. So we had a last minute idea of going before the tickets were “blacked out” for the summer. We chose Memorial Day weekend since it was a long weekend off for me and I knew I could get…

Little house update

I know it’s been a long time coming for this post so I figured I’d do a little snippet of the latest piece/project in the house: my record player table! For those who know me, I’ve been collecting vinyl since high school and really felt that my player didn’t have its own home for it…

Blender Recipes

I finally caved and got my hands on a Ninja blender! Originally, Eddie was making protein shakes and wanted to blend some fruit into them before we found out our old blender doesn’t work. Here was my chance! Banana Oatmeal Muffins (with nonfat greek yogurt) I always wanted a blender that was powerful enough to…
